My husband got this recipe from a former co-worker after she brought the apple cake to a food day. I've made a few adjustments to the recipe and my husband says it's even better than the original (maybe he's just being nice?). Either way, every time we've made it our guests LOVE it and almost always have more than one piece. You can serve with whipped topping or ice cream.
Found this in Cotton Country Collection by The Monroe Louisiana Junior Charity League that my DB and DSIL gave me for Christmas in 1981. I started using the Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa a few years ago with rave results. Its this chocoholic's dream cake.
It is incredibly moist and rich, as well as easy. I use a disposible pan and take this to potlucks all the time. You can also mix in a bowl with the same results. (If you use the frosting recipe make sure you use whole milk, I made the mistake of using skim once and it came out so thin that even twice the amount of sugar would thicken it and it was too sweet after that to eat.I had to scrape it off and add more cocoa.)
A chocolate-y, decadent, rich cake with a silky, heavenly frosting all accented with a touch of almond. Eat it and weep! Adapted from a recipe by Anne Byrn out of her Cake Mix Doctor book. Soooo Gooood!
This came in my March issue of Southern Living. I immediately saw it and felt the need to post. My family loves anything Strawberry and this is amazingly easy and oh so delicious. I hope you all enjoy it too!! I doubled the amount of frosting as they did in the magazine.
You won't recognize the white cake mix after adding strawberry gelatin and fresh berries. Add the rich cream cheese frosting, and this cake has blue ribbon potential. This is a superior cake, perfect for birthday parties and baby showers.
This recipe is adapted from "The Chocolate Cake Mix Doctor" by Anne Byrn. It was originally a bundt cake with chocolate chips, but I prefer the look of layer cakes (so much more homey looking) so I switched the cake pan size AND I left out the chocolate chips (because there's nothing worse than ruining the velvety texture of a layer cake than by adding hard chocolate chips to it).
This is a dense, moist layer cake. I cut each layer in half so I get 4 layers and slather them with "perfect chocolate frosting" (recipe #86768). The end result is a fudgy chocolate layer cake with tons of frosting (and yes, it is going to be sweet). It is KEY to cut the layers in half. It ends up being a much moister cake this way because the frosting kind of melts into the cake layers forming a kind of fudgy filling in between the thin cake layers. I hope you enjoy it :)
